Brochitis is a real ****** when you're riding. Not only does it sap your strength like many ilnesses do, there is also the coughing to contend with. Coughing while you're trying to do anything physical is detremental to that activity, but at speed on a motorcycle it can put you on your ****. To compound the problem most drugs that suppress the cough reflex have unwelcome side effects of the "do not operate heavy machinery" variety.

Carl shouldn't had listened to the British media when they tried to tell him he was the best thing since sliced bread after he got this first podium. Those sukers completely broke his momentum.

The objective should be to race for points and not crash. I hope he does just that. The illness, its not the first time a rider has gone down and it wont be the last. Its little wonder, going from one country to another all over the world, all those germs and viruses when they are in the clouds (flying in the planes)- its probably not the bed-of-roses life we think a MotoGP rider has. Goes without saying, best wishes Cal.
